THE STORY:

The Bay Colony Olympics is an annual Virginia Beach charity event/competition with all proceeds benefiting Surfer's Healing VB, a Virginia Beach non profit organization who hosts surf camps at the beach for children with autism. The Bay Colony Olympics feature eight teams of 20-30 Weekend Warriors who compete in six events that test their athleticism, endurance, teamwork, and liver. It is truly a spectacle to watch and only one team can finish atop the podium. Bonus points are awarded for the team who can raise the most money for Surfer's Healing and Team WATKINS would sincerely appreciate your support and a charitable donation to our cause. Every dollar makes a difference,  THANK YOU!

Surfers Healing was founded by Israel and Danielle Paskowitz. Their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with autism at age three. Like many children with autism, he often suffered from sensory overload– simple sensations could overwhelm him. The ocean was the one place where he seemed to find respite. A former competitive surfer, Israel hit upon an idea–with Isaiah on the front of his surfboard, and Izzy steering from the back, the two spent the day surfing together. Surfing had a profound impact on Isaiah. Israel and Danielle decided they wanted to share this unique therapy, they began to host day camps at the beach where children with autism and their families could be exposed to a completely new experience of surfing.

Believe it or not, 2016 was the 12th year that Virginia Beach has hosted the Surfers Healing Foundation Team. We started our camp in Virginia Beach with 75 children. This year we were able to expand our camp to two days and help 450 children feel the healing power of the ocean while walking on water.

As this camp is free to all families we couldn't do it without the sea of support from our many Community Partners, Sponsors and Volunteers. This occasion has been rated by locals and participating families as one of the most touching and most inspirational events they have ever experienced!

Surfers Healing Virginia Beach is organized and run through Guardian Angels Fund, Inc. a 501(C)3 Non-Profit & Philanthropic organization: EIN#: 42-1606959
